This is the song I told Simon that its intro seems to be a cover of Toto "Waiting for your love".
I couldn´t remember the Toto title in that moment talking with Simon.

I relate the first three intro chords of the tune with Toto´s one.

Anyway, sweet tune...

My drum beaters working nicely... :)

8 lugs on the bass drums, as there should be! :)

Mmm, that´s cool but the music in that clip is kind of dull... There´s no fire or sparks. Would love to see Simon pushing Hiromi and the piece a little harder... (My deepest respect to Simon, just saying...)

New video.
The tune is a little (/·H*?&%$)/)&&.
I think I don´t like Anthony Jackson´s tone/sound in this band: tooooo looooowwwww for me.

Simon generates such cool, creative and angular fills. So original. So good...


He really is one of the greats.

Awesome sound...and one of the ugliest compositions I´ve ever heard.

This is fantastic, amazing playing all round. Yeah Simon is right up there, he's got his licks, and like Gadd uses them a lot but damn the way he uses them is so musical.
Ugly composition? Which notes didn't you like?

Hello percusski,
of course this is personal taste.
I just don´t like the tune. Not even a single note: I mean melody and chords.
I am not talking about the time signatures (a little forced for me here), it´s just the NOTES.
I find the tune like a bunch of piano rhythm riffs, and played with notes I don´t like.
It´s what I call ugly.
Maybe (well, without the maybe) I´m not a fan of Hiromi music. Only 2-3 tunes I can say I like it.
Note: I gave it a second listen.

I really like this performance and song!!! :lol: I still cannot figure out how Hiromi's hands stay in one piece.
